How to stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19)
03 February 2021
This guidance is for everyone to help reduce the risk of catching coronavirus (COVID-19) and passing it on to others.
By following these steps, you will help to protect yourself, your loved ones and those in your community.
The main way of spreading COVID-19 is through close contact with an infected person.
When someone with COVID-19 breathes, speaks, coughs or sneezes, they release particles (droplets and aerosols) containing the virus that causes COVID-19.
These particles can be breathed in by another person.
